If you are seriously this thick, should you not be desysopped as a security risk immediately? What chance that these people have the first clue about password security?
The people who think content creators make good Administrators, explain this. They're morons. How did they ever even figure out wikicode (because paradoxically, these people are always the same luddites who want Wikipedia articles to be written in its bashed together native code forever and ever, because IT'S THE ONLY THING THEY KNOW HOW TO USE).
You would have lost me as an admin if you'd required TFA. Not only is it far beyond my level of technical comfort, and makes it all too easy to get locked out, I'm not going to spend $400 plus data plan for a smartphone for Wikipedia or anybody else. Massive imposition for little gain to the project in terms of security. Yngvadottir (talk) 22:55, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Ditto. I act as an admin as a favour to Wikipedia, sysop status isn't a favour Wikipedia does to me. I have no intention of committing to permanently owning—and having permanent access to—an expensive piece of technology which requires a permanent and expensive subscription. purely because Wikipedia is having one of its periodic bouts of security paranoia, and if that means someone else has to clean out CAT:EX instead of me I believe I can live with the loss. ‑ Iridescent 23:01, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
There was also this hilarious post......
What are the chances someone who barely uses a smartphone, has cracked the holy grail of computer security? No dude, you do not own a quantum computer, and the WMF are most definitely smarter than you. And they 'ain't all that smart.Well, I have a password which can not be broken. I do not want to turn on TFA because I (almost) do not use a cell phone. I am not sure why WMF thinks they are more clever than I, and I am already unhappy with 2FA requirement for interface admins - I will possibly have to resign my interface admin rights, but if RFA is required for all admins, I am not sure what I am going to decide. If you want to lose admins with zero benefit, this is probably the way to go.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:33, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Again, why would you not immediately desysop this moon boot as a clear and obvious security risk?
